Ex Ante and Ex Post Evaluations: Two Sides of the Same Coin? The Case of Gender Mainstreaming in EU Research Policy

Abstract

This article engages with two themes of contemporary EU governance: the role of evaluations within an effective and coherent policy-making process and the EU’s constitutionalised commitment to promoting gender equality in all its activities (Article 8 TFEU). It focuses on the interface between ex ante and ex post evaluation and the contribution of evaluations to policy learning, with particular attention to the promotion of gender equality. A case study approach is followed, with EU research policy as the object of analysis.
